Storyline

In the near future, the demons prepare for a new assault on earth, which is protected by the guardians, a struggle that has gone on for eons. The dark masters have found ways to release the demon inside humans, and the first victim is Eiji, just at the moment he becomes engaged. He's hidden away in a brothel while the chief demon, Takamiya, assisted by an incestuous brother and sister, Huang and Chen, perfects the process. The earth's guardian, Tsunami, teams with Eiji's fiancée to set up a final confrontation. The earth's fate hangs in the balance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Rushed
30 January 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Twilight of the Dark Master" tells the story of Eiji who is turned into a monster. A white haired protector tries to defend him and other humans against demons. All in all, the story is too rushed for 46 minutes. Most likely the movie would have been better if it was twice as long. There is little background information, we witness just another clash between good and bad, and the audience's interest in the characters has hardly time to develop. A drug has the power to turn people into monsters, this is hastily explained in a minute, before more heads explode. The characters are at least visually well created, good sounds, the animation is fine, but not top for the 90s (quite a lot of talking without anyone's lips moving). So, you needn't spend a sleepless night if you missed this.
